One of my granddaughters is eight-years-old today.  She will be having a birthday party with her friends later.  Last night, we celebrated with a family dinner.  I am sharing the children’s table from last night’s dinner.

I recently ordered this plastic stemware from One Kings Lane.  The grands loved their new stemware that looked like what the adults were using.

I’m so glad that I still have some blog visitors.  Since I am no longer linking to memes, and my posts are few and far between, I’m surprised anyone comes to visit my blog.  Thank you so much for  remembering to come see me.  Laurie

The children's table is super-cute, and I'll bet they felt "almost" grown up with such fancy napkins and stemware!

Laurie it couldn't be any more adorable! Happy Birthday to your Grand daughter! I relly LOVE those ostrich feathers! Was your GD thrilled to pieces?
And you silly silly you'll always have visitors!

Debbie said...

I love your kiddie tables. I have always thought it was wonderful that you will set them up with their own festive setting, complete with stemware. When I'm a grandma some day, I want to do that.

I think it's all just as pretty as it can be!

Happy Birthday to one lucky little girl.

Ginny said...

Oh Laurie your granddaughter is so blessed to have a grandma to make such a pretty table. I agree about the stemware. I usually give my grands little stemmed glasses to drink from and they think it is so special!
I always enjoy your blog. I don't blog as much anymore either. I think I felt pressured to blog a lot or else no one would visit. But that changed! I blog when there is something I want to say or share.

Oh my goodness, this is the cutest table! I love it! The place settings are so adorable, but for some reason, those plumes really make it for me! So cute!

I would be fighting to be at the kids table! Love the votives and feathers. Wish I had seen those darling napkins.
